9-25-14; 3-yr. olds. Itsy Bitsy Spider;
They sat pretty good; I let them help show me where the spider was
during the story (only if they were sitting right).
They liked that.:)
I did red leaf, yellow leaf first. The book was a bit wordy it did not have a great story line. I had to spice it up a bit with things like commenting on the pictures(see the dirt worms in the dirt) They were not able to follow the story.
10-9-14; 3-yr. olds; The book is good, just too much for this age even when trying to para-phrase it. I had them count the worms and etc. just to keep attention. But one with more distinct pictures or the story about a leaf would be better.(They did good considering).
The busy little squirrel was a hit! There was not much content, but we added to it with the pictures. We made a text to self connection with how the squirrel stored food just like we store food up in our freezer for later. It took several practice rounds to get the "He was to busy".
Apples and Pumpkins;(3-yd. olds). We read the story and talked about a pumpkin patch, apple orchard, etc. I found a 4 minute video on taking a virtual trip to a Pumpkin Patch and an Apple Orchard with Miss Stephanie. They were very attentive for this; doing much better at sitting also. The "finger-plays" also help with wiggly bodies.
10-20-14; Apples and Pumpkins; 4 yr. olds; They liked the finger-play and are learning to sit criss-cross a lot better than the beginning of the year. After reading the story, I had a you-tube video about Miss Stephanie's virtual apple orchard and pumpkin patch. They liked that and sat pretty still.
